I am looking for a Boat Shop to do a re-power, and a bunch of miscellaneous work on a 31 BHM that I just purchased. The boat is in CT, and I am on Long Island. There is no engine in the boat so running it isn't an option. I have a boat hauler lined up for the end of next week, which was a little tough this time of year. He is willing to take the boat to ME, or wherever, as long as he has at least a days notice on destination. I also can't keep the boat at it's current location much longer so I had to jump on the opening.

I have spoken to a couple of builders with open slots, but haven't gotten any definitive answer or estimates yet, which is not their fault, I am just pressed for time due to the combination of circumstances.

I figure I should throw this out here, In case something doesn't work out with a builder I have spoken to. Does anyone knows of a good shop (btwn Long Island and ME)with an opening that can do the work? Budget will be a limiting factor, so I will do whatever I can afford, the necessities being the repower, window installation(currently there are none) electronics and wiring, and some finish work in the wheelhouse.

Congrats on finding one! You probably already have but if not shoot Travis a pm, his family knows a thing or two about the 31 Bhm.

Give Travis a call. He can give ya a quote on the work and on SISU marine diesel if you have not picked out an engine ;)

This is the current condition. Cutouts are in place for sliding door at port helm, and on starbard side as well. Windows at cutouts need reframing. The prior owner glassed in plywood on the interior of wheelhouse.
